Kernel nrj 3.9.1 for ROSA 2012 2012.1 & MDV2010 2011 cooker

Post by NicCo »


Kernel 3.9.1 for ROSA MARATHON 2012, ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 (2012.1) and Mandriva 2010, MDV2011.0, OpenMandriva Cooker

To check the build status from ABF (in realtime)
https://abf.rosalinux.ru/kernels_39x/Ke ... uild_lists


INFO about the SRPM build possibilities and rpm availability:
For ROSA Marathon we'll build Kernels LTS: 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, and all the latest kernels up to the 3.10 series
For ROSA Fresh we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.6 to the most recent series
For "Cooker" we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.8 to the most recent series
For old distros Mandriva 2010 and 2011, we are maintaining build compatibility: you can also rebuild,
but we CANNOT prepare the rpms for You, as we have no chance to build with ABF or in our own PCs
Available kernel flavours are: desktop
but there should follows all other main flavours, like realtime, laptop, netbook, server

We have tested: VMWare 9.0.2, VMPlayer 5.0.2, VirtualBox 4.2.8: are OK with 3.8

Kernel 3.9.1 by MIB
This is prepared like the official one used for ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012
this version is the prepared by MIB for Mandriva and ROSA development

Since October you could find some differences and news also in this mainline serie,
the reason it that we are in full development mode for ROSA 2012.1:
from version 3.5.6 we will release two new flavours and also their 32bit pae versions
  • kernel-nrj-laptop > It's optimized for laptop PCs, with a particular attention for cpu cooling and the battery lasting
  • kernel-nrj-realtime > It's optimized to have the lowest latency and so it's better for realtime apps like jackd, ecc...

Builds
RPMS for MDV2011, RM2012 and ROSA 2012.1 are built by ABF, RPMS for MDV2010 are built in personal VM 2010.2

Testing status:
in Mandriva 2010.2 and ROSA 2012.1, x64 and x32, it install, works and performs nice

ImageIMPORTANT, READ!
  • New path of the Kernel folders for Mandriva and ROSA
    General INFO about the new kernel paths and also about the new proprietary kernel drivers
  • Before downloading and installing any kernel 3.9.1 flavour, you need to install the Required microcode firmware!
    Microcode firmwares for cpu AMD / INTEL updates
    With the proper cpu microcode enabled you can obtain a more reliability of you system, especially indespensable in server area, so when your cpu has a defect, kernel will found the best work-around to avoid slowdowns, or dangerous oops that could harm till to freeze your OS...
  • Notice for the users of MDV 2011!
    ABF build for 2011 is broken nowdays, when and if the 2011 build side will be fixed you'll find again the rpms.
    Some problems could still occour in Mandriva 2011 by dracut remaining problems with installation and update
    these problems if / when happen are not our fault, because aren't related to the kernel contents or packaging...
    Once I succeeded to solve this ugly problem, installing the "dracut" version from RM2012 repositories into 2011

    You can also get the wished SRPM and make a local rebuild for your own old Mandriva 2010 or 2011
